If it wasn’t bad enough that Mike Dean let Will Boly get away with an elbow to the face of Ayoze Perez yesterday, the Spaniard has admitted that Dean’s reason for not giving a foul was because it was the ball that hit his face – and not Boly’s elbow.

Perez and Rafa were incensed after the game, with the gaffer calling for VAR to be introduced – and it’s no surprise given this was a blatant penalty and potential red card offence.

Here’s what Perez said after the game, revealing what Mike Dean told him after the incident:

“I don’t know what we have to do to get a penalty. The guy elbowed me really hard straight in the nose but the referee said it was the ball that hit me not the elbow, even though I was bleeding”
